    Poll: Stop Bath

    B&W processing needs a stop bath after the developer. Which do you use? Water? Pre-made acid stop (e.g Ilfostop,)? Or something home made? I'm trying to make my first poll!

    Depends on the film and developer. For example I will use Kodak stop bath with TMX developed with D-76, but just water with FP4+ developed with PMK.
    I donít think thereís a one-size-fits-all.

    I used ilfostop. However, I have used just water, and in one occasion, I used water with two drops of vinegar (at 4%).

    I have used Fomacitro for some years but once my current supply runs out I plan to mix stop bath from citric acid.

    Water for film, a few ounces of 100% acetic acid in a tray of water for paper. No issues.

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.
